SOURCE: Having trouble opening Photo Explosion 3

This may be an issue of a losst file or corrupted file with in the program itself. You might try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it to correct the issue. You may also try the following steps to see if it helps the issue.

clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

- Before attempting to install the game, make sure that you have no programs running in the background or system tray.
(Windows XP / Vista)
Go to the Start menu, (and choose Run if using XP). Delete anything on the Open line that you'll find there, and type in the work MSCONFIG. Click on OK, and that will bring up a program called the System Configuration Utility.
Look down the list of startup items (not the tab labeled Startup), and choose Selective Startup (if it is not already selected). If you don't see this, make sure you've clicked on General, near the top of the window. Once you've chosen Selective Startup, uncheck 'Load Startup Items', and leave 'Process System.INI file' and 'Process Win.INI file' checked. Once you're done here, click OK, and let it reboot your computer.
Your Windows environment may look different and you may get an error relating to your sound device not working (ignore this for now). Try running the game again. If the game loads and seems to be working, the problem is most likely related to one or more programs you have scheduled to load with Windows. You can then revert the settings back the way they were, and in a trial and error fashion, disable some programs using the startup tab (in the msconfig utility) to try to find the culprit.

(Windows 98/ME)
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the close program window. End all open tasks EXCEPT Explorer and systray.

- If you still have problems installing, you may not have the necessary hard disk space to install the game. You will need to clean out unnecessary files on your hard drive or otherwise allocate more space if you wish to install and play.

- Try a safemode install.
1. Copy the contents of the disc to a new folder on your desktop.
2. Restart Windows in Safe Mode.
3. Run setup.exe from the setup folder in the new folder you created on your desktop.
4. Restart the computer in normal mode and try the game.

- If all else fails, your game disk may be scratched or damaged.
1. Inspect the underside of the CD closely.
2. If their are any smudge marks, dirt, or scratches, clean the disk.
NOTE: When cleaning CDs, wipe from the center of the disc to the edge using a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use a circular motion. Also, do not use paper cloth which can scratch the plastic and leave streaks.
3. Insert the CD and try installing again.
NOTE: Many common install problems are caused by scratched or damaged disks. If you think your game disk is damaged and needs to be replaced, please contact a Support Representative (Ask a Question tab above) to obtain replacement information as well as an RMA number.

I hope this answers your question.
Thank you for visiting FixYa for your solutions.

Photo explosion 5 it crashes before opening at launch stage I've windows 10


I have checked the specifications of it and it is not designed for Windows 10.
It could be a driver problem that has not been fixed, or something else.
You could post a question on Microsoft, asking "will Photo explosion 5 operate under Windows 10" and see if you get any responses.

Also try a Google search with that question first.

I bought a new laptop a couple months ago and tried to download my Photo Explosion Special Edition v.3 to it. It successfully downloads, but won't open, even after a reboot and a reinstall to repair...


if its windows 7 you may need to try "compatibility mode" right click on the icon and go to properties and select the compatibility tap and then try different ones until it works.... you may need to go to the software makers web site and look for a patch for the software to work with win 7

This used to work perfectly on windows XP. I now have windows 7 & after downloading the Photo Explosion 2.0, it won't open & the programme just freezes. Help.


Downloading means you retrive any files and save to your PC/Laptop from any web source!
Installing means you install any software/programs to run on your PC/Laptop.

As for your software "Photo Explosion 2.0" could not run on Win 7 due to software "Compatibility Issues".

You can try, using "Win 7 compatibility mode" installing older software read this LINK

NOTE**
"There is no guarantees older software will work using Win 7 compatibility mode!"

Hope it helps.

Photo explosion 4.0 project studio. When I create


I kind of doubt this is your problem, but try and save the file by using the "save by a different name option." Then click options and slide the file size to large. Make sure you have your color setting set to rbg, not cymk. The channel should be set to 8 bits, not 16. I am not sure where that selection would be made in 4.0, but jpgs are not compatible with 16 bit channel. If you can't find the setting, check the help file.

Two questions: 1 Can you open any pdf and jpg files in Photo explosion, and 2 can you open the files you have created in photo explosion in another program?

If you can't open any jpgs/pdfs with any program, the problem is probably with your operating system. If the problem is only with photo explosion created files, and they can't be opened in any other program, it may be the "plug in." That is the piece of software required to produce the file. A viewer is also required. If you can open the jpg in another program, that would indicate photo explosion. The plugins that are loaded into the program should be listed, possibly under tools. You can try to update/reload these.

You have not indicated your operating system. This is important to correctly answer more complicated issues. For instance, if you have Vista 32/64 bit, your software has to be compatible and set to the right version. Because Vista is prevalent, I looked to see if it is compatible. Unfortunately, Nova recommended buying an update for the 32 bit version and had no info on the 64 bit. Somewhere on the photo explosion box there should be a small label telling you what it is compatible with. I hope that if this was not helpful you will leave me more info and answers to the above by writing a comment. I can get back to you with more specific advice.

I cannot launch photo explosion 3.0 on my Win xp


I found that to be the problem, To many pictures in your folder. My photo explosion deluxe 3 opens up to C/pictures. the program fails, times out, because it takes to long to load all those pictures, I moved my pictures from C/pictures to C/photos folder. You may be able to use any other folder. It worked like magic. Opened fast with no delay. I had installed and uninstalled 25 times or more with no luck. also deleted and folder( u lead ) from the c/ windows/ ulead, while I was uninstalling things.
I had help here. was asking Jesus to help me figure this out 2 months or more , Finally the answer just popped in my head , I,m not smart about pc. So i know he helped me. So I share with you Jesus and the answer to this problem that drove me crazzzzy!!!
Linda
If this helps you, thank the Lord Jesus.
